Provost Elementary School

Hey Provost, did you know that regular school attendance can be a bigger predictor of student graduation than test scores?  After the pandemic, the state of Utah has seen a dramatic increase in the number of chronically absent students.  In the last decade, this number has nearly doubled.  Provost has not been immune to this issue.

This month Provost Elementary is in a contest with Provo Peaks and Wasatch to see which school can have the highest percentage of students present at school.  We are asking students and parents to please help us in making school a priority and beating both Provo Peaks and Wasatch and more importantly ensuring that your students are present and here for the important lessons that teachers have prepared.

Of course, we understand that students get sick and there are times when students need to stay home.  We are not asking for students to come to school sick, but please encourage your students to be in school and be on time!

Reto de asistencia aceptado

Hey Provost, ¿sabías que la asistencia regular a la escuela puede ser un mayor predictor de la graduación de los estudiantes que las calificaciones de los exámenes? Después de la pandemia, el estado de Utah ha visto un aumento dramático en el número de estudiantes crónicamente ausentes. En la última década, esta cifra casi se ha duplicado. Provost no ha sido inmune a este problema.

Este mes Provost Elementary está en un concurso con Provo Peaks y Wasatch para ver cual escuela puede tener el porcentaje más alto de estudiantes presentes en la escuela. Les pedimos a los estudiantes y padres que por favor nos ayuden a hacer de la escuela una prioridad y ganarle a Provo Peaks y Wasatch y más importante asegurar que sus estudiantes estén presentes y aquí para las lecciones importantes que los maestros han preparado.

Por supuesto, entendemos que los estudiantes se enferman y hay momentos en que los estudiantes necesitan quedarse en casa. No estamos pidiendo que los estudiantes vengan a la escuela enfermos, ¡pero por favor anime a sus estudiantes a estar en la escuela y llegar a tiempo!
